Summary

The powerhouse of the Vitamix blender family, the A3500 blender is intelligently designed inside and out. The machine offers five smart program settings that automatically detect the size of the container in use, so foods are perfectly blended according to volume and consistency. A built-in programmable timer can be set to stop the blender when processing is complete, so you don't have to monitor its progress. This set includes Williams-Sonoma's The Perfect Blending Cookbook, with more than 30 recipes for using your blender to prepare any meal of the day, from breakfast to dinner, snacks to desserts.

  • Five program settings – Smoothies, Hot Soups, Dips & Spreads, Frozen Desserts and Self-Cleaning – automatically adjust times and speeds for container selected and stop blender when done.
  • Compatible with Self-Detect containers, so you can create multiple batches from the same machine – then store, serve or transport.
  • Programmable Timer shows blend time countdown and can be set to automatically stop when processing is complete.
  • Tamper presses thick or frozen mixtures toward blades, so you never have to stop to scrape sides down.
  • Blades are laser-cut from hardened stainless steel for the ultimate precision and durability.
  • Container designed to rotate ingredients back to blades for faster, more efficient processing.
  • Machine's sleek touchscreen display is easy to use – and even easier to wipe clean.
  • Includes Williams Sonoma: The Perfect Blending Cookbook, with more than 30 recipes for dips, smoothies, sauces and soups as well as creative ideas for breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert.
  • Also includes Simply Blending, a full-color, hardcover recipe book from the Vitamix culinary team.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Gift Idea Ever! I bought this as a gift for a friend with chronic health issues. She and her husband were so excited that they TRIPLED their gardening plots to accommodate what they plan on using it for: healthful eating, smoothies, dips, hummus, etc.... They tossed their old KitchenAid and set this up for everyday honor and use. After a few weeks she let me know how grateful they are and how her health has improved. They spent tge first few weeks watching YouTube videos to learn how to make the best use of it. Thanks for making such a great product. I also included the smaller beverage containers as part of the gift.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile I haven't used it for anything but smoothies but I am experimenting. It is so versatile because you can make sauces and soups with it. It is great.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Accessory cups take too much wrist strength Accessory cups take too much wrist strength To close for machine to detect and are hard to open, if one can get to blend. I cannot. Otherwise, dish there was a smaller container kid size to make smoothies. Cannot get accessory cups to blend.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A3500 Healthy Healing Body Choice I wanted my Vitamix to think for itself, meaning that I could place all my ingredients in the mixer, press one button and the Vitamix does the rest. This is exactly what i found with the A3500 Vitamix. Recently making a large life style change to Whole Fresh Foods after a diagnosis of cancer, purchasing a Vitamix was first on my list to recovery. Top quality in the A3500 Vitamix, Various Button Selections on the front of the blender make it a breeze when creating a Smoothie to a Fresh Sauce. Very easy to use and cleaning the blender is a snap. A3500 Vitamix - Thank you for being with me and helping my body become Healthy and Healing again.
